As some of you have noticed, during our blind staff picks (involving multiple staff members in the process) we mistakenly nominated two users twice. We'd like to take a moment to sincerely apologize about this mishap, we were unfortunately not able to address it prior to the voting process and as such there will be only 46 runners up.

 

After a lengthy internal discussion we have decided that those who were nominated twice will only receive one reward appropriate to the bracket they placed in. As this would remain the fairest option available given the situation, we appreciate your understanding and will take steps to prevent this in future contests.

Can I just...

Congratulations to the winners! I think every screenshot that won really deserved it this time around and people made a good choice for pretty much every month, although it wasn't always my favorite tha won. ^_^

Could you perhaps share some insight into how exactly those 'blind staff picks' went down and what your criteria were? Because many of us - including several winners - were very confused about certain choices for the runners-up, maybe you have read some of the posts in the last thread concerning this event. You said yourself that there were over 4500 submissions, but took only a single day to determine the Top 60 among those - I find it hard to believe that you had a chance to look at all of them and the runners-up reflected that imo, hence why I am still under the assumption that the selection was at least a partly random process or at the very least extremely arbitrary.

I'd suggest taking more time for the selection, should you ever do an event like this again, and putting more care into the selection of the winners the next time. I feel very disappointed with this event and somewhat frustrated to have put in a lot of effort into this, only to then lose to screenshots that I don't feel should have had a chance against even half of the submissions in this thread. I don't think I'll get as excited about any future screenshot-related events again, knowing how it went down this time.

I certainly understand the concern and appreciate the suggestions for the future, I can confirm our staff did review all of the photos during the voting process. Unfortunately the current time constraints lead to having a much tighter window than we would normally prefer for a contest of this size, due to the end of the year is rapidly approaching and our preparations for the New World Regional Servers.

While I'm not able to go into heavy detail regarding our selection process, one of the reasons we required the use of Imgur was to assist in our ability to view each image via our software. There were indeed a ton of amazing pictures that did not make the cut with the limited amount of available slots, and we appreciate the huge amount of effort that was obviously put into each picture.

Congrats to everyone and thank you Kakao for this event \o/ 

The calendar is going to be awesome !

I'm really happy to be among the runners up, even though you made a mistake spelling my name on the board it's Nordhal not FNordhal :)

Damned fingers! Apologies I have corrected this now. :) 

Congrats to all who made it into the runner-up list and of course to the winners.

Question: how are the rewards going to be delivered? It would be nice if we could get them before the sales end.

While I would love to see this be the case, a huge amount of our staff is involved in the advanced prep work for the New World Regional Servers, many of these folks handle the back end systems necessary to deliver these prizes. I will see if it is remotely possible but I would error on the side of the delivery being done by maintenance of the following week.

Congratulations to the winners.

Most of the pictures I like so that's great. Most of them even fit the theme so yay!

That said... I still really like my pictures, just because I worked so hard of them. So I was wondering if the BDO team would make available a calendar template for those of us that would like to make our own BDO calendar. I think that would be nice. I mean, I know I could just take any template.. but it would be nice if it was the BDO one.

Anyway that was just an idea and maybe it would make those of us that lost feel happy anyway :)

There were indeed a ton of amazing pictures that did not make the cut with the limited amount of available slots, and we appreciate the huge amount of effort that was obviously put into each picture.

If the staff did indeed review -all- the screenshots, I'm just as clueless as I was at the start about how in the world certain screenshots made it into the Top 60 when there were so many better alternatives posted in this thread alone. Perhaps there were certain requirements for the screenshots we weren't told about? If so, please make sure to include more clear and strict rules in the next event of this kind. I assume that's where the issue was, since you mentioned you can't give much detail on the selection process - I understand there's probably a good reason you can't talk about it, but it makes me wonder. I don't think the reason for any of the great screenshots in here to not make it was that the contestants failed to use imgur for the upload.

Anyway, I appreciate the answer and semi-explanation. I honestly hadn't expected to get any sort of response, so I'm thankful for not being ignored and that you're considering our feedback for the next event of this kind. :)

Not trying to be a smart -@ss, as this is a real attempt to be helpful, but you can try https://www.shutterfly.com/calendars

I'm sure as long as there is no BDO etc, logo then it's not copy written, but that is a thought I'm sure.

My other idea is for someone to get a website going or thread to post everyone's pictures, it would be nice to view some more.

You can see a lot of them in this thread (http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/118873-picture-the-seasons-calendar-event-winners-announced/ ) but we would have to find the other participants and convince them to post them :)

@CM_Aethon why is it like that? :C this event ended while sale was still active, but why will you be sending rewards when there's no sale anymore? T_T

Super not fair :( and not right! I don't think sending items through ingame mail would take SO much time from people working on merge that it would anyhow delay this merge =(

It is unfortunate that we didn't get the rewards while those tasty sales were still ongoing, but well, maybe there will be a nice Christmas sale in a few weeks, can just save the Pearls until then.

Hello everyone!

I know alot of people (incl myself ^^) aren't happy that their screenshots didn't get decent attention. You spent alot of time to make them and we wanna give you a chance to share your great job with everyone.

We are going to make a slide-show as opening for podcast on 10th Dec by using all the good screenshots that didn't manage to become Runners-Up for the calendar event.

If you want to join us, please send me a link to your imgur album with your screenshot(s).

It should be 1920х1080 resolution (cause of stream settings) + creator name in the right bottom corner (your forum name or in-game family/character name or real name, it doesn't matter). We know some of you made screenshots with different resolution, but you can "fix" your screenshot: just copypast it on a black background with 1920х1080 resolution and we will show it as well. Or not black background...smth, what you can like ^_^

You can use pm on the forum, or THAT thread or discord (Rinel#2944) to send me your links.

Please don't allow me to choose some of your screenshots, do it by yourself and send me your best, cause you may not like my opinion:)

We dont know how many screenshots we will show. It depends on how many screenshots we will get till next friday.

I'd like to remind you that your screenshots have to follow the event rules: "Each screenshot should represent the months appropriate to that season and include your character in the picture".

Also we'd like to aware you that we will not show screenshots which can affect any ToS of BDO or Twitch.

About our podcast:

We have Jordine weekly siege podcast. It starts every saturday after territory wars. Guild leaders or their official representatives join this podcast to tell us what happened during siege, talk about alliances, tactic, backstabs, etc. Our last pre-merge podcast was very salty, cause we managed to get representatives from Alustin and Croxus as well xD You can find it here: November 26th https://www.twitch.tv/swiper_n0_swiping/v/103609148

It became EU podcast now cause of server merge. We usually put an official BDO art for opening/ending.

Our salt mine is here http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/100317-eu-territory-and-node-war-chronicles/&page=1 in case u are interested ^^
